Lettuce Begin… (haha??)

G’day! A rather nice spring day! Even reasonably warm out there!
So back to the garden it was… this time it was the lettuce seedlings turn to go out.

I had to rake all the seaweed off, dig up the twitch that was determinedly growing and dig in a couple of bags of mushroom compost

I managed to dump the whole tray out on its head… oops! Such a klutz! Happily didn’t squash/kill many

They always look so limp and pathetic when they first go out

Hopefully they will perk up in a few days (the broccoli are already sitting up beautifully!)
I gave them a watering and covered them with the rest of my saved recycling bottles.

I still have a LOT of seedlings. Some I potted up with the intent to sell out the front if they grow nicely and look good

Right now they are not at their best!!!

Keeping the passionfruit company!

I am thinking it is about time to feed, weed and mulch the garlic.

The girls enjoyed the weather today – and we got three cackleberries!

Hope your weekend has been great and stay safe all those in the path of Irma!! She’s a bit frightening!

Take care

  1. It looks like you are off to a good start. I’m winding down here in California. Getting ready for fall. Was really hot last week. Will be painting a 5×7 foot mural for my church for the next few weeks, then off to new adventures.

    1. Hi Carmen! Are you putting in winter vegetables? Or just packing it all away?!
      Your mural sounds like a fun project! Hope it goes well and you get some continued good weather while you are on the project (inside or out?) 🙂

      1. Will be putting in some cool season veggies, sugar peas lettuce broccoli spinach, start some sweet peas for spring color.
        We are at sea level on the coast, so don’t have to worry about hard freezes, just a little frost once in a while.
        Mural will be painted inside so we don’t have to deal with
        the weather.

        1. I love sweet peas! As well as the colour they smell so pretty!
          Thats a good selection of cool weather plants! Its easier on the coast where you don’t have the hard freezes!!
